Planned Giving

Thank you so much for your interest in learning about the many benefits of gift plans. Planned giving allows you to make a donation to the AETN Foundation that is mutually beneficial – it ensures good stewardship of your assets by increasing benefits for yourself and for your family while supporting quality educational programs and services at AETN that change lives!

Planned gifts generously given to the AETN Foundation are placed into our General Endowment unless directed differently by the donor(s). Earnings generated from investments are also used to grow the Endowment. This fund exists to help cover cost increases for purchasing national programs, to help fund local program production, and to help fund the expansion of new program and service ventures, while safeguarding against any potential decrease in operating funds.

If you have any questions, please call 1-800-662-2386. A member of our AETN Foundation team will be happy to help you.

Leading for the Future

Leading for the Future
Luke and Candice spent many years volunteering and supporting their favorite charity. They wanted to give back in a way that would help fulfill its mission. At the same time, they were looking for a way to care for their family in the future.

Luke: We heard that now is the best time in years to set up a charitable lead trust. We could fund the trust with cash or stock and the trust would pay income to the charity for a number of years, with the rest of the trust value going to our children in the future.

Candice: We liked the fact that our children would be well cared for and that we could see the result now of our gifts to our favorite charity.

Luke and Candice were also pleased to learn that taxes on the gift to their children would be significantly reduced by the added benefit of a gift tax charitable deduction. After the income was paid to our organization, the remaining trust value would go to their family with very little tax owed.

Luke: Candice and I found that by using a charitable lead trust, we could accomplish our goals of helping both family and our favorite charity during our lifetimes.

Is a charitable lead trust right for you?
